Celebrity Century Cruise Review by way2cheap
- Sail Date: May 2012
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Century Suite
Since this was a cold weather cruise, laying by the pool and reading a book were not options unless you used the wool plaid blanket they provided. The Newsletter had things to do but no crew member shows up to organize things like bridge or even a basketball tournament so no one stays. Bingo and dance lessons were about as good as it got. Computer labs were available but for a fee.
Entertainment in the evening was the highlight and most people attended. However if you sat in the balcony, you could not see the stage. Must be no crew member ever realized this.
Food was very ordinary and presentation was not their thing. Our dining table only had all 8 people show up twice during the cruise....often we only had four or six people show up for dinner at one time. A table near ours had just one couple more than once. So I think our opinion of the food was felt by many. The buffets seemed to provide a better variety of food and the quality wasn't much different.

Icy StraitNot much of anything to do unless you choose to zip line. Not even many shops to exploreView All 251 Icy Strait Cruise Port Reviews

Float PlaneThe float plane or seaplane took us over beautiful glaciers on our way to Taku Lodge. Once at the lodge we had a great meal and learned the history of the lodge. It had a great gift shop, far better than what one sees in port and very reasonably priced items. Scenery was beautiful and the black bears joined us for picture taking. Best thing about our cruise.View All 66 Float Plane Reviews
Misty Fjords FlightseeingThis time the seaplane was much older than previous but gave a great view of the Misty Fjords by air. We landed in a lake and stood on the pontoons to take pictures. The windows on the plane were so scratched that pictures from the plane were not crisp. Still a great adventure and the plane took us places we would not have seen otherwise.View All 88 Misty Fjords Flightseeing Reviews
